Congressional candidate mum on felony record

TUPELO – First Congressional District candidate Flemron “Ron” Earl Dickey remains tight-lipped about a 2012 felony bad check arrest, two days after making public statements about an ongoing bankruptcy case and misrepresentations of his military record.

The Horn Lake Democrat said Saturday he wouldn’t discuss his Jan. 4, 2012, arrest by the DeSoto County Sheriff’s Department or the few-hour jail stint.

“You didn’t ask me any questions when I first announced I was running because my life or campaign wasn’t interesting enough for you,” Dickey said. “You’re not going to treat me like a little boy on a street corner wanting to ask me anything.”
